French Automaton Esquivillon & De Choudens Pocket Watch | Antique from the 1790s

Frères Esquivillon & De Choudens” worked in Paris between 1765 and 1830, creating highly valued pieces preserved today in numerous private collections and in institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

The Genevan watchmaker Jacques De Choudens (1728-1801) founded a company manufacturing high-quality verge pocket watches and early cylinder escapements with the brothers Joseph Esquivillon (1714-1798), Jean François Esquivillon (1) (1733-1813) and Gédéon-François Esquivillon (1717-1799). The watches were mostly signed with Les Frères Esquivillon & De Choudens but also with Esquivillon & De Choudens and Les Frères Esquivillon.
